Exceeds Expectations
By firebirdbandit on


2012 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)


I had extremely high expectations for this car and it has exceeded them. I previously drove a Pontiac Firebird Formula V8 350 LT1 engine and the Volt is way more fun to drive. It is very well built, comfortable and drives awesome. Feels like I went into the future. I am trying to find all kinds of excuses to go driving. The car is also a great value. It seems expensive but when you compare it to the 5 year cost to own, it is below many other popular cars including the Taurus, Camaro and Maxima.

Best Features

Instant Torque, Silence, Pedestrian Alert, Low Gear.

Worst Features

Onstar app is slow, either speed up the Onstar connection or allow the car to have the ability to connect to the home wireless network.
